Best memory for AMD rigs?

I'm hopefully getting some OCZ 3200 Platinum which I've heard is excellent with A64 based systems - at the moment I'm using OCZ 4200 EL DDR which is great at 1:1 with Intel based systems but it's overkill for the A64. What memory do you guys use with your AMD setups?

Can't really comment on the AMD64 side of things yet as I'm not running one yet but I'm currently running my mates Corsair XMS4000TwinXPro (he blew his P4 up so I have the RAM atm ) in my Barton system which is amazing. Fast as anything and very very stable with nice timings (i think, not much good with timings but lower seems better).

I'm quite surprised you can good timings out of that corsair - I've only ever had duff corsair myself - I'm using two lots of OCZ here - I've got a gig of 4200 EL DDR which is awesome 1:1 and 512MB OCZ PC3700 Gold Rev 2. I've had that at 510DDR! I'm getting this OCZ 3200 Limited Edition tomorrow. I hope it lives up to the reviews.

what sort of times are you running those corsair mate? i would consider 2 2 2 5 good timings up to 260fsb...after that its quite impossible ...without PSU mod

2 3 3 6 would be nice for 250+ fsb action

My 3200 LE has turned up - turns out I've got the last batch in the UK. It's supposed to be very nice. Good tight timings too.

..will do mate - it's a totally different kettle of fish this AMD setup. For starters, the evaporator installation is totally different. I find the Intel one easy in comparison - I've had to really twist the hose to get it to fit on to the cpukit. Everything went ok however, (touch wood) and I got into the bios - first thing I notice as odd - the cpu temp is reading -8 degrees! Now that could indeed be accurate for the first time ever, I just dont know - maybe it's exceptionally bad contact - I have no idea at present, I'd need to clarify with other AN50R users. But it seems to be working ok - I just need to configure the RAID drivers now before I can XP installed - problemo when you dont have a floppy drive. How come the Intel installation overall is a breeze compared to this....
